You have some pretty good options! Don't withdraw from NYU! Sometimes you get lucky, but I do understand considering decision time is approaching. GOOD LUCK!

Yep, I'm 89.9% sure I'm going to enroll at Columbia. You have very good options as well. Where are you leaning? Cornell? I wish you luck transferring in '09.

Hey man, congrats on making a decision, and getting money. I know you were worried about both. Anyway, see you in the fall (probably)!

You have some pretty good acceptances yourself. I see you chose Michigan...good luck there. Originally I was leaning towards going to GW beause DC would have been a better location for me for personal reasons but now with the Cornell acceptance I have no idea where I'll be in the fall. I plan on riding out all my waitlists so anything can change.

  • Sunday, April 13 2008 at 10:05 PM

I read on LSD that you were thinking about transferring to a school closer to NY. I'm in the same position you are, as I want to be in NYC but I'm not willing to go to Fordham. Are you still planning on doing so?

- futureGSrainmaker
  • GW or Cornell
  • Wednesday, April 16 2008 at 06:43 AM

Out of curiosity which would you choose? You seem to be pretty knowledgeable of both schools. I'd appreciate your opinion.

A lot for your advice. Everyone's been telling me the same thing and you are right...it really isn't a sacrifice to be in Ithaca for 3 years.

  • Thanks ...

... for all the encouragement and good luck at Michigan!

  • more info about PS/ DS
  • Saturday, April 26 2008 at 05:02 PM

I know that PS is a personal statement, but what is a DS? I have similar stats, but have had medical and financial hardships; and looking for more ways to make myself a more desirable candidate. Any advice??

thanks for the advice. i'm going to save up and do a class, and try to take all 50 tests. it'll suck and be time consuming, but If I get a phone call from Toby Stock it'll all be worth it

Unfortunately even the great lengths that I went through to get out of the GULC agreement went unsuccessfully. I\'ll be at GTown next year but looking to transfer

We are GPA twins, and I'm an AA female intending to apply to Cornell, GW, and Gtown. Did you enroll in courses for the LSAT and if so which? Any tips? Thanks.
